Month: December 2021
I was at a networking event the other day when a professional woman leaned in close to me after she found out I had three children in addition to my full-time job. “How,” she asked, “do you do it all?” I tipped my head back and laughed. “I don’t.”
On Saturday, I went to the unveiling of a historical marker memorializing the lynching of Fred Rouse in downtown Fort Worth 100 years ago. The experience reminded me that though our country longs to be free of the ugliest parts of our history, the past still haunts us like an unruly ghost.
Sometimes I think people get nostalgic for a time when being colorblind was seen as progress. But we as a country don’t have the luxury of being colorblind. That’s because we never were.
